Shelton Student Ambassadors
The Shelton Student Ambassador Program will develop student’s skills related to values-based leadership, public speaking, strategic and critical thinking through a series of activities and projects. In this experience, students will collaborate with the Shelton Leadership Center staff on projects related to the center’s values (honesty, integrity, diversity, social responsibility, and compassion). Some of these projects may include: identifying areas of growth for the center, serving as a host for an event, evaluating programming, presenting ideas to the office, collaborating on a center event, or designing a community-focused event for students to participate in. By actively participating in the creation, analysis, discussion, and reflection of activities and projects, ambassadors will gain or enhance their skills. Through this experience, students will not only develop as values-based leaders, they will cultivate a passion for active citizenship. Students will participate in bi-weekly meetings with advisors to review projects and discuss how these projects extend from both personal and center values, and how this experience is preparing students for their future aspirations.
This is a one year program, however, ambassadors are well prepared for future SLC opportunities in leadership as a coach/mentor/trainer for the Red Hat Shelton Challenge or even applying to serve as a Year-Two ambassador.
New Shelton Student Ambassadors are recruited at the end of each spring semester. For more information on the program, please contact Sierra Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jenn Fendrich at email@example.com.
